Club Piscopo will be located inside the old Starlight Theater
ATLANTIC CITY — During the grand opening of Resorts Casino took place on May 27, Dennis Gomes, Joe Piscopo and Mayor Lorenzo Langford announced that several exciting attractions will be coming to Atlantic City’s newest resort.
The grand opening of Resorts Casino brought loud cheers from those who attended with the announcement that a new club and three circuses will be coming to Atlantic City this summer.
Club Piscopo will be located inside the old Starlight Theater and will feature primarily comedy and jazz entertainment.
The three circuses, one of which is an adult-only “Naked Circus”, will take place across the street from Resorts.

When we went to the Family Secrets Mob trial it was a surreal experience. I guess it was during the time 'The Sopranos' was really big. So when I walked in, I expected it, I think to be a little more like traffic court or something like that, that I was familiar with, but it was very much like a scene out of 'The Sopranos.'
Resorts’ classic Italian restaurant, Capriccio, has just introduced a new tapas menu. The term comes from Spain and refers to small plates served as appetizers, usually paired with wines and other spirits.
Dennis Gomes, CEO and co-owner of Atlantic City’s Resorts Casino Hotel, died overnight on Thursday, Feb. 23, of unconfirmed causes, according to reports and information released by Resorts spokeswoman Courtney Birmingham.
One new attraction that may have slipped under the radar is the elegant entertainment at the popular Sunday Brunch...
The performers in Cirque Risqué will be dressed — actually, undressed — in just enough clothing to conform with New Jersey gaming laws that prohibit nudity in casinos. That means pasties, G-strings, peek-a-boo lingerie and body paint for the women and glorified jock straps for the men.
Resorts has provided AC Weekly with terrific time-lapse video showing the raising of the new Resorts Event Pavilion, where the circuses will be performed through Sept. 11, 2011.
“I’m reaching back before casinos and really even before I was born. Before gambling when every big star would make Atlantic City a stop. From Jerry Lewis to Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra when he played the 500 Club. I’m reaching back to the Latin Casino — which was actually in Cherry Hill — but that style. We’re not a supper club per se, but that style of entertainment.”
